Senior constable Lamarre-Condon, who once dated Mr Baird, was charged with two counts of murder on Friday.

He was seen buying an angle grinder and weights last Wednesday, police say.

Former Aussie TV host Mr Baird and his boyfriend were last seen in Paddington, a suburb of Sydney, on February 19.

A huge search was launched for the pair after bloodied clothes of the missing couple were found in a bin in Sydney.

On Friday, Lamarre-Condon, 28, handed himself into cops.

But investigators are still searching for Mr Baird and Mr Davies’ bodies.

Cops fear the suspect may have killed the couple at Mr Baird’s home in Paddington before moving them to a remote property in Bungonia more than 180km away.

Police say Lamarre-Condon could have transported the bodies in a white hire van.

New South Wales police said the alleged killer had taken “an acquaintance” to the remote property last Wednesday.

They claim he broke the lock on the gate before leaving the female friend there.

He then drove the van onto the property and returned to her at the gate 30 minutes later, police say.

The acquaintance, who has been cooperating with police, said she “wasn’t aware the bodies were in the vehicle”, Mr Hudson said.

Police fear Mr Baird’s and Mr Davies’ bodies may have been submerged in a dam at the remote site.

Cops are probing whether Lamarre-Condon later returned and moved the bodies again.

The same day, Lamarre-Condon was seen buying an angle grinder and weights from different shops, cops said.

They believe the angle grinder was used to bust the gate open.

As well as searching the area in Bungonia, police divers were seen searching a waterway 335km away in Newcastle on Saturday.

Police allege Lamarre-Condon used his police gun to kill Mr Baird and Mr Davies at the former TV host’s home in Paddington, Sydney, on Monday night before dumping their bodies.

Detective Superintendent Daniel Doherty said the cop was on duty at the time – but called into work sick on Tuesday after the alleged murders.

The detective said “a large amount of blood was located” at the crime scene – along with a bullet matching Lamarre-Condon’s work-issued gun.

 Mr Doherty also confirmed that a white Toyota HiAce was found on Friday morning in Grays Point in Sydney’s south.

Lamarre-Condon previously dated Mr Baird and cops have been told that their break-up was “bitter”.

Mr Baird reportedly expressed concerns for his safety and said he was being stalked.

Mr Doherty said there were “no warnings or flags to us in relation to his behaviour or any relationship breakdown”.

Celeb chaser Lamarre-Condon was known for taking selfies with famous faces such as Taylor SwiftMiley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian.

It is understood he was making moves to pursue a new career in acting just days before the alleged murders, reports the Mail.

On Saturday, friends and supporters transformed Mr Baird’s home into a temporary memorial, laying flowers and cards outside to show their support.

Some of the flowers were left on the street, while others were placed on the railings outside the terrace house.

One card left at the site says: “Lukey and Jesse.” Rest in peace, lads. We’ll miss you. “So much.”

Mr Baird’s cousin Austin has also paid tribute, describing his as “one in a million”.

He said: “You cared about everyone and left such an impact on every person you met.”
